When it comes to colors, few are more perfect for a dog in both name and appearance than orange. According to color theory, it embodies energy, joy, sunshine and stimulation which, for most dogs, hits right on the nose. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that many breeds from Dogue de Bordeauxs to Vizslas are already orange and oranges themselves are also a healthy treat for your dog if served properly and in the right proportions. So if you’re looking for a great themed name that can potentially represent some aspect of both their aesthetic qualities and their personalities, going orange is easily one of the best ways you can go.

Dog Name Meaning Orange Considerations

When considering which direction to go with your orange-meaning name, it’s best to put together a list of their most notable traits, such as their looks or personality (as well as their eating habits for the purposes of this exercise), as they will be the best and most appropriate points to work with. 

If you want to base their name on their appearance, consider all of the objects that are in an appropriate color range. If they happen to be darker in hue and have a bit of red as well, Orangutan, Ochre and Rusty would all be good fits. For those who are a bit lighter, maybe Persimmon, Ginger, Marigold or Butternut would be more appropriate. 

If you want to select a tag based on habits or tendencies, consider whether they have a favorite food (or an anecdote related to that food) such as Munster, Cheeto, Pumpkin or Yam. 

Of course, you can always create multiple layers of meaning as well. If they tend to stalk their prey in the yard (or their toys or playmates for that matter), Tiger would be a good choice the same way Goldfish would be good for a dog that’s a bit dopey. For a dog that’s always getting into something strong-smelling, then Cheese, Cheddar or Tikka would all be perfectly suitable.

There are lots of ways you can go, so don’t be afraid to get creative — which is unsurprisingly also a facet of orange’s color theory.
